28 Days picture

Other mistake: More than halfway through the film, after Gwen's room-mate has died of an overdose, she rings her sister on a phone that is not only "Emergencies Only", but it has no numbers on it. So how did she dial out?

The Replacements picture

Other mistake: When Orlando Jones uses the stickup for his hands, in the next play his hands are very clean, and if you have ever used it, you know what I am saying.

Bedazzled picture

Other mistake: When Elliot the genius homosexual and Allison arrive at his apartment he hangs her wrap on the arm of the statue. He then begins to take off his overcoat and hangs it on the other arm. There is a cut to another angle and the coat is already hung on the arm and he is sliding out of it. There was not enough time for this transition to happen. (01:02:15)

Next Friday picture

Other mistake: Deebo's name is spelled with 2 e's, but throughout the movie the subtitles spell it with only 1 e.

Taxi 2 picture

Other mistake: When the airbags are deployed on the "indestructible" Peugeot they stay inflated, making it difficult to get the driver out of the car. Comedic effect aside, real airbags do not deploy when the vehicle is stationary or hit by a hand on the roof and also begin to deflate immediately after deployment due to the gasses cooling and leaking out of the vent(s) in the bag. A previous correction speculating about modified airbags cannot be proved and is irrelevant as they are a legal safety feature of the vehicle and cannot be modified.

Drowning Mona picture

Other mistake: At the beginning, the police say, "Mona Deary is dead." But how do they know that? The car isn't hers, it's her son's, and it's in the water. It's only when the car has been dragged out of the water that they can see the true picture.

Digimon: The Movie picture

Other mistake: When Tai is typing an e-mail of apology to Sora, he accidentally types "Love Tai" as opposed to "From Tai" which he finds more appropriate. At that moment, Kari walks in, resulting in Tai's embarrassed stumble into the keyboard. We then see a highlighted "From Tai" change into "Love Tai". It is possible that Tai had already changed it before we saw it and then accidentally pushed Ctrl+Z upon Kari's arrival, but this is more than doubtful.

Me, Myself & Irene picture

Other mistake: When the cow is seen on the road, note the black and white patterning on its hide. At the end, when you see the cow in a neck brace, it has different patterning. (00:29:50 - 01:44:35)

Cast Away picture

Other mistake: In the cave we see Tom Hanks drawing an analemma without a precise timekeeper, which is needed to draw one. What he could have done is a meridian rect, which is build with the meridian time. The analemma is the differential chart between the solar time and civil time.

Suggested correction: No, what we see is Tom Hanks drawing a chalk outline on a wall to approximate the date. There is no reason to assume he got it exactly right or knew exactly what he was doing. He probably started just by drawing lines on the cave wall to mark the days then noticed the light.

Greg Dwyer

I'm afraid "just drawing lines" doesn't create the well-crafted analemma you see in the movie. A very precise time-keeping device is necessary: just a minute off will dramatically change the shape.

The Ultimate Christmas Present picture

Other mistake: When Hallee Hirsh 's name appears in the credits, a kid on a scooter moves across the screen, and he looks into the camera. (00:00:35)

Growing Up Brady picture

Other mistake: Either there was or wasn't a 5-year contract from the onset. At first, Sherwood told Bob, "It's just a pilot episode. If we get picked up for a series." Narrator Barry Williams said his agent called to tell him "the network picked up the Brady Bunch for a full season." Season One ended but Sherwood didn't call "until the last minute" to tell the cast they "would be coming back to a second season." Later, Sherwood told Bob that he knew when he did the pilot that he signed a 5-year contract. (00:05:50 - 00:21:40)

Suggested correction: Those two things are not mutually exclusive and that's not how it works in the television industry. Actors usually have to sign a test option agreement with the studio prior to the pilot being picked up (sometimes even before auditioning). This ensures the studio that the actor is committed to the project long term should the pilot be picked up, but signing the contract agreement doesn't guarantee the pilot will be picked up. A 5-year test option agreement seems pretty standard.


I'm aware of such contracts - and surely Florence Henderson would have also been required to sign a five-year agreement, but there (conveniently) was no mention of this.

The Skulls picture

Other mistake: When Caleb and Luke are stealing the snake weather vane, when they fall into the moat, you can see the snake floating. This weather vane is presumably made out of metal and should sink like a rock but you can see it floating when they fall.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas picture

Other mistake: When Martha May is getting ready to put up her lights with the cannon, she pulls a charging handle, and starts firing. If you watch closely, you see a lit string of lights come out, but the spool that they're on isn't moving, or lit up. Then after all of the lights are out, it still fires several more times (watch the aiming indicator- it continues to flash with the sound).

Vertical Limit picture

Other mistake: When Wick is delegating climbing routes, he tells part of the team to climb "Hockey Stick Gully." This route is known as the South Face or Polish Line and although climbers can climb it, no-one has since 1986 because it is an extremely dangerous route due to the amount of technical climbing and avalanche exposure. Climbing this route in a rescue attempt would almost certainly result in more casualties.
